The monitoring and detection offered by this system sets a new standard in primary care, and reinforces our commitment to using the most progressive equipment available for the benefit of our patients.
Indianapolis (PRWEB) December 16, 2014
Priority Physicians has announced the integration of the FotoFinder Automated Total Body Mapping (ATBM) system as a new component of its executive physical exam and ongoing preventive care protocol. In doing so, Priority Physicians becomes the 4th practice nationally and the first in the Midwest to offer this new bodystudio system for patients.
According to the American Cancer Society, skin cancer is the most common of all cancer types with more than 3.5 million skin cancers being diagnosed each year in the United States. One of the best ways to fight this disease is through regular monitoring and early detection. With the FotoFinder system, patients of Priority Physicians will now benefit from the most innovative screening solution available for total body mapping and preventive dermoscopy.
“We are excited to offer such advanced technology to our patients,” shares Dr. Matthew Priddy, President of Priority Physicians. “The monitoring and detection offered by this system sets a new standard in primary care, and reinforces our commitment to using the most progressive equipment available for the benefit of our patients.”
With the FotoFinder, Priority Physicians can take high resolution, digital total body images (four sides, palms and soles) in about four minutes. These images are important in the battle against skin cancer because they are carefully documented to set a baseline for each patient. The physician can use these images to monitor changes over time, thus eliminating the need for the physicians to solely rely on their own memory. With the new technology, the physicians will see changes in moles or lesions that may not be noticeable to the naked eye, but when magnified by up to 70X become much more determinable. These magnified changes can be used to detect early stages of skin cancer and in turn enable patients and physicians to make good decisions when it comes to treatment and care, leading to more successful outcomes.
“The Bodyscan module compares all baseline and follow-up images, working to match the lesions while highlighting new and visibly changed lesions,” states Ferdinand Mayer of FotoFinder. “This allows doctors to quickly determine which spots need to have dermoscopy and possibly further treatment.”
